Animals, Energy, and Fall: LIFE IS AN ECHO. What you send out comes back. What you sow you reap. What you give you get. What you see in others exists in you. Via @conscious_collective 5. The Principle of Rhythm • "Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates." • "This Principle embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, to and fro; a flow and inflow; a swing backward and forward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and low-tide; between the two poles which exist in accordance with the Principle of Polarity described a moment ago. There is always an action and a reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking. This is in the affairs of the Universe, suns, worlds, men, animals, mind, energy, and matter. This law is manifest in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man (and it is with this latter that the Hermetists find the understanding of the Principle most important). The Hermetists have grasped this Principle, finding its universal application, and have also discovered certain means to overcome its effects in themselves by the use of the appropriate formulas and methods. They apply the Mental Law of Neutralization. They cannot annul the Principle, or cause it to cease its operation, but they have learned how to escape its effects upon themselves to a certain degree depending upon the Mastery of the Principle. They have learned how to USE it, instead of being USED BY it. In this and similar methods, consist the Art of the Hermetists. The Master of Hermetics polarizes himself at the point at which he desires to rest, and then neutralizes the Rhythmic swing of the pendulum which would tend to carry him to the other pole. All individuals who have attained any degree of Self-Mastery do this to a certain degree, more or less unconsciously, but the Master does this consciously, and by the use of his Will, and attains a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness almost impossible of belief on the part of the masses who are swung backward and forward like a pendulum.

Albert Einstein, Alive, and Being Alone: 31 Quotes That Will GIVE YOU CHILLS Some people die at 25 and aren't buried until 75 -Benjamin Franklin Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions. Their lives a mimicry. Their passions a quotation. - Oscar Wilde Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. -Arthur C. Clark Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds -Albert Einstein Of all sad words of mouth or pen, the saddest are these: it might have been. -John Greenleaf Whittier I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks, but I do fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times. Bruce Lee And when you gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you. -Friedrich Nietzsche Don't let schooling interfere with your education -Mark Twain A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on. It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society -Jiddu Krisnamurti Every man dies, but not every man truly lives. William Wallace Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go. Oscar Wilde Have I not destroyed my enemy when I have made him into my To love is to recognize yourself in another - Eckhart Tolle Prejudices are rarely overcome by argument: not being founded in reason they cannot be destroyed by logic. - Tryon Edwards If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yean for the vast and endless sea. They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety n Franklin Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy'. They told meI didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life -John Lennon Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. Albert Einstein As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world-that is the myth of the atomic age- as in being able to remake ourselves. Mahatma Gandhi The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed. In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. Dwight D. Eisenhower Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. zu Dalai Llama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity said: "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly leaning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off -Chuck Palahniuk The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are. HL Mencken <p>Quotes That Will Probably Give You Chills</p>

Sadly same story with Dr. Carson. </p> </blockquote> <p>Boy are you and Breitbart dumb.</p> <p>That article was so poorly written and so contrived that it hurts to think people took it seriously. </p> <p>That vote was on TPA (”trade-promotion authority”) not TPP (”trans pacific partnership”). Not only had Rubio’s staff confirmed that he had read BOTH TPP and TPA at the time of the vote, but the vote wasn’t even on the trade agreement as this article tries, poorly, to insinuate. </p> <blockquote> <p>Sometimes you have to simplify congressional procedure, but this is absurd. Breitbart writes, “Breitbart News has given Rubio more than a month—and at least five separate opportunities—to answer whether he read the text of TPP before he voted for it.” This is flat-out inaccurate – Rubio hasn’t voted for TPP; that vote will come at some point in the future and he can vote against it then if he’s so moved. Obviously it is more likely TPP will pass if President Obama gets trade-promotion authority, but the comparisons to “pass the bill so you know what’s in it” are way off base. In fact, it’s widely acknowledged that we have to give the president trade-promotion authority in order to have a deal to vote on at all – a preliminary version of which, again, Rubio has read.<br/></p> <p>- <a href="http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/420209/yes-marco-rubio-read-tpp-and-thats-not-even-what-he-voted-today-patrick-brennan">National Review</a></p> </blockquote> <p>Don’t get me started on the fact that a self-proclaimed “conservative” is hating on free trade. </p> </blockquote> <p>TPP is fast track, which was sadly passed. It’s correct TPA has not even held a vote. Nobody has read the TPA, which is impossible due to the complexity of the globalists anti-American bill, though the secret deal has been skimmed over.</p> <p>Apparently congress-critters weren’t allowed to read the bill except in a locked room by themselves and cannot share copies with their staff prior to the vote. No notes were allowed to be taken.</p> <p>Why the cloak-and-dagger shadiness? That alone makes me think it’s a bad idea. </p> <p>Plus, if Obama is for it and big businesses are for it (big business has establishment republicans like Ryan in their back pockets) that probably means still more manufacturing jobs going to third-world countries along with increased importation of cheap laborers to this country……both feature prominently in Obama’s&quot;<i>fundamental transformation</i>“ dreams for America.</p> <p> The fact that establishment Republicans are fast-tracking this before anybody can read it makes me suspicious. </p> <p>A lot of publication’s I usually agree with have been wrong, they’ve slightly mislead as The Federalists and the National Review.

Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. </p> <p>Rubio may looked over it, later at some point. He didn’t previously at time of publication and repeatedly dodged the question.

I’ll give you ten reasons why TPA is bad news.</p> <p>Bottome Rubio has not truly read the Bill, nor have you and I. It’s sad when WikiLeaks has to leak it to the American people.

No notes were allowed to be taken.</p></blockquote><p>Okay, but the trade deal hasn’t even been voted on yet. The reason they can’t take copies out is because it’s still in negotiation. Trade deals and negotiations are conducted that way normally. </p><blockquote><p>Why the cloak-and-dagger shadiness? That alone makes me think it’s a bad idea. </p></blockquote><p>Then I guess all trade deals are a bad idea, because that’s how we negotiate them. </p><blockquote><p>The fact that establishment Republicans are fast-tracking this before anybody can read it makes me suspicious.</p></blockquote><p>That’s not how TPA works idiot. When the trade deal is completed (it has not been completed or voted on to my knowledge) it will be sent to congress for them to review, it will also be viewable by the public. If congress has issues with it, the deal goes back to the negotiation table, then comes back to congress and is again viewable by the public. </p><p>The reason you can’t read it now is because it isn’t completed. The reason you couldn’t read it when that dumbass article was written was that it WASN’T COMPLETED. </p><blockquote><p>A lot of publication’s I usually agree with have been wrong, they’ve slightly mislead as The Federalists and the National Review.

If the negotiation is not complete you can’t know what the end result will look like, so wikileaks is causing excitement over literally nothing. </p><blockquote><p><b>Sovereignty will be lost</b><br/></p></blockquote><p>TPP is aiming to actually protect the copyright and intellectual property of Americans.</p><blockquote><p><b>The TPP and TTIP are “living,” “evolving” agreements. </b></p></blockquote><p>They are currrently evolving because they are in negotiation.
